“Gender” appears in Trudeau’s budget 358 times. Here's how bad it is, by the numbers

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Yesterday Justin Trudeau and Bill Morneau rolled out their budget. It’s a bit different from what they promised to get elected. For one thing, the budget didn't "balance itself." There’s an $18 billion deficit.

Before Trump’s tax cuts, Canada actually had a more favourable tax environment for companies:

The average U.S. corporate tax rate was 38.9 per cent. In Canada it was 26.7 per cent.

Well, Trump took a chainsaw to that. Now the average U.S. corporate tax rate is 24.9 per cent.

No wonder the stock market is juiced. No wonder companies are expanding, building factories. And they’re about to cancel NAFTA on us.

But Trudeau’s budget? It was as if none of this was happening.

Instead, we got a budget about feminism and global warming. 

If you’re thinking of building a factory, would you consider investing in the U.S, or in Canada, a jurisdiction where a wannabe Kardashian says you have to have your factory reviewed for its gender sensitivity?

I’m not kidding.

The word "gender" appears in the budget 358 times — and the whole budget document is 369 pages.

The words "feminism" or "feminist" appear in there 24 times. "Transgender" is in there, too.

By contrast, say, to "pipelines." Or "farm." When those words show up at all, it's not good news, as I'll show you tonight.

Trudeau’s never run a company in his life. Neither has Catherine McKenna. But they’re going to change the law to force feminism on companies in the country. More red tape. More wasted money. More costs. More distractions. More reasons to up and move to the U.S. — even if NAFTA isn’t scrapped.

Trudeau isn't reacting to the world — to Trump, to tax cuts, to competition. It’s like he’s just dancing, dancing, dancing.

But hey — Bono, that rock star from the 1980s band U2 — he loves this budget, especially the spending in foreign countries.

So it’ll all work out, right...?

NEXT: Aaron Wudrick, Federal Director of the Canadian Taxpayer Federation, comes on to explain why he calls this "the Seinfeld budget."

THEN: Joseph Humire, Executive Director of the Center for a Secure Free Society, updates us on the deteriorating situation in Venezeula.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

I been through all these comments. Is anyone out there aware of these gay documentation (agendas) that have been written since the 70’s?? That’s why the reporters here at The Rebel have to keep going over these types of stories over and over again.

Are there any gender numbers on the BS refugees Justin has taken in? I bet there are far more men than women.

The liberal media sheep will cry when Trump shoots down Justins gender hogwash but they remained silent when China does the same.
commented 2018-03-02 01:18:27 -0500
If NAFTA and our budget must be gender sensitive then why is our aid to other countries NOT?? If countries do not play the gender ball then they should not get funding from us, or are the Liberals just filthy hypocrites?
commented 2018-03-01 18:33:26 -0500
There MUST be a Non Confidence motion leveled at the Jihadi Justin Lieberals. Make the No Democracy Party SHOW who they truly are as well! NAFTA is going to collapse and the Lieberals will wear it, regardless of how many times they try to blame Harper!

Trudeau, your supposed ‘feminism’ is useless to women and girls who have come from female-hating Third World cultures and who are being horrifically abused IN CANADA within their cultural communities.

Trudeau, why aren’t you helping these women and girls? Why do you want anti-female cultures in this country? Why do you favor them for immigration into Canada? You’re not a feminist, you’re a PHONY LYING HYPOCRITE!

My wife and I are seriously identifying as Americans. I wonder if that makes us eligible to apply for asylum in the U..S. to escape this Trudopian SH#IT-HOLE.

- So growing the economy from the heart outwards & the budget balancing itself hasn’t worked out? Who could have figured that would happen? So the Liberals want to tackle the imaginary pay gap. They want to virtue signal with Canada’s economy. They are fighting the imaginary problem of man made global cooling/warming/climate change. Of course they are. A problem that doesn’t exist but that they can use to generate endless tax streams & pretend to save all humanity. Trudeau loves to play make believe. Unfortunately, Canadians have to live in the real world.

- Bill Morneau seemed to be reading from a script written for him by some fiction writer. There seems to be a disconnect from reality. How does killing the Canadian economy help women? Did Morneau get the traditional new shoes that finance ministers get when releasing the budget or did he steal a pair from a homeless veteran? Any media outlet who takes government handouts is not to be trusted.

- Bernie Sanders is, like all socialists, out of touch with reality. Foreign entities are propping up Venezuela so they can access their oil & set up bases close to the US. The Obama administration tore up the Monroe Doctrine to help make this easier (though Venezuela’s socialist government was ensuring that the foreign takeover would occur anyway.) So the people are reduced to eating rats while the Venezuela political class become billionaires. That’s the true face of socialism.

This budget is a waste of paper. He will blow throw any projections of expense and will use it as a distraction for Canadians while he loads every migrant, financial or otherwise, alleged refugee and third country immigrant into the country. Then he will will give them all a chance to vote. He will cheat our election and, of course, blame it on the Russians. We have so much to look forward too. (sarcasm). There are so many smart answers here, it’s nice to read mostly intelligent comments.

Ezra: “IT’s as if none of this was happening” (5:30).
Yeah that’s the thing about leftists. They live in a fantasy world where they get to play God and create the world in their own image- or at least in the image they desire. Reality need not intrude on the virtual variety.

All of this is part of a bigger parcel. Finances are no more beholden to truth and science than genders are. Don’t like your gender? Fine. Proclaim it to be something else. Change it at will. Frequently.

Abortion is evil? No problem. Just redefine babies into products of conception. Define them as non-persons.

The whole left wing zeitgeist is based on the denial of reality. The reality is first and foremost, there is a God and you are not Him. To deny this foundational reality sets a person down the track of further and further denial until the leftist is a joke so twisted they can’t see it. To wit the continuing humiliation of the Dear Leader. Anyone else would hide out for a month after each of these gaffes but not our Socialist Superperson. He has lost touch with reality so completely that he doesn’t even feel the shame that he so richly acquires.

That brings us to the Three Pillars of Leftiedom. The cause of all of this stupidity is:
1. they never learn from their mistakes (gaffe a-minute-and laff-a minute-Justin)
2. they never learn from other people’s mistakes (i.e. history)
3. they refuse to exercise discernment.

Again, Chesterton said it best:
“When men choose not to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing, they then become capable of believing in anything.”

Get ready…..in 2015 the boy PM won on legal weed. In 2019 he will win on national pharma care. It has begun. He has started the process. I am afraid for this great country. Keep up the fight to educate and reveal the strategy to keep power, by the Liberals .

It’s not just the prime loon who has mental health issues, but all of our institutions are infected by this Marxist mentality, based on hate and envy, and the need to have power over others. They truly are disturbed!

The bright side, Ezra, is the worse Jr. does, the sooner we can vote him out. The not so bright side is, I think Smilin’ Andy Scheer needs to have a Patsy Brown moment so the Conservatives can get a new leader.

Trudeau seems to be a little confused about how a budget should be put together. Perhaps he should let the grown ups play.

Where does this moron come up with this crap, did his mom help him with his budget homework during a late night bong session? Gender equality in the workforce is his concern? We have had a female prime minister, there are female astronauts, doctors, welders, truck drivers…my supervisor is a woman. Some careers are more suited to men, due to physical requirements, but some females can, and are able to thrive in these industries.Does he feel that all ‘personkind’ need to be represented 50/50 in all work forces. Does he have trouble finding female dance partners? No wonder he has to bribe the media in this budget. i guess that doest matter anymore since hard working taxpayers won’t be able to afford a friggin newspaper anyways. i only pray that the couple of gracious immigrants that can read english, have the decency to let the military use them as blankets, come winter. What kind of plan is in place for when the skilled and educated CANDIAN, tax base have to declare bankruptcy…. mabey syria will open their hearts and wallets. Their governments will be sure to make us feel at home with selfies of the leader crying over how repressed we are.

We now have a Prime Minister who is a dangerous blind lunatic. He considers himself a feminist but he loves foreign cultures that oppress women. He wants these cultures in Canada in order to ‘enrich’ our society.

Trudeau suppresses freedom of speech with one hand with fascist outrages like M-103 while handing media outlets taxpayers’ money with the other. Doing so, he tailors the message to his liking and subverts democracy.

Trudeau let slip a while ago that he likes dictatorship as a form of government. Now he is proving it. As Jesus said, If the blind lead the blind, will they not both fall into the ditch? Canada is now falling into the ditch.

Canadians as a whole – are simply getting what they deserve.

The voter of today is for the most part a true socialist.

Socialism kills. There are numerous examples.

Ahhhh,yes, socialism. Always just one execution away from utopia.

Royal Canadian Carbon Police. Mounted officers riding around fighting carbon. Awesome. Just what I was looking for in the Federal Budget!
They will have to be mounted on bicycles since cars burn carbon fuels and horses produce methane
a greenhouse gas.

A frightening and disheartening show…
Frightening for what the near future portends…based on what’s been occurring recently…and escalating.
Disheartening because of all the Canadians that still, blindly support this whack-a-doodle and his gong-show of foreign agents and virtue-signaling useful idiots…
We are so hooped!

Thanks for bringing guests like Joseph who wrote for Gatestone Institute. In This Town Called Malice, we never hear anything about Venezuela and how Iran, Russia, and China are using it as a proxy to harm the United States. Keep on bringing good guests so we can know what’s actually happening in this world.

By the way, my swear bunny is getting full from all the times I cussed the stupidity of Trudeau et al. I really do think there’s a stupidity contest going on and Trudeau wants that first prize desperately. Let’s hope he offends so many people that even an empty suit called Andrew Scheer will win with a landslide next year.

Canadian’s are following the EU invasion…WHY ARE YOU?…Do you hate yourself?? I and my Family don’t hate ourselves!! If you hate yourselves that much..just form a team of yourselves along with trudeau and go to Syria and build your utopia over there…or why not join trudeau’s brother in Iran…you got a connection to get in with the top brass…we don’t need you!….go on now…git..

Watching and listening to Trudeau it’s obvious that he’s after the votes of the “simple”.
From Merriam-Webster:
Simple (n)
a : lacking in knowledge or expertise
b (1) : STUPID
(2) : mentally retarded
c : not socially or culturally sophisticated : NAIVE; also : CREDULOUS

Trudeau knows how to pander to the lowest common denominator. I’m totally disappointed how many Canadians fall into this category. The polls demonstrate this clearly.

Expect more attestations, the summer jobs program was just the beginning.
I wonder how long it will take to undo all the garbage Justin has plugged this country up with when we get him out? We will have to get after Scheer, or maybe beg Bernier to start a new party if Scheer hasn’t picked a lane by then?
One step at a time. First step, get Justin out.
I want Justin to continue to be himself until election day. He seems to be on a roll.
